Rafiki Safari Lodge is a luxurious wilderness tent camping experience, located within 842 acres of pristine primary and secondary rainforest along the Savegre River, 30 kilometers south of Manuel Antonio. Rafiki Safari Lodge focuses on conservation, adventure, and sustainable tourism, thus creating a positive and renewed vibe to your Costa Rican vacation. Rafiki Safari Lodge amenities include restaurant, bar, pool and water slide.
Guests can enjoy a wide range of activities including, whitewater rafting, waterfall tours, jungle safaris, birdwatching, horseback rides, hiking trails, cultural experiences, and much more! Positioned in the heart of a rainforest, the lodge allows to create their own adventures by simply exploring the properties vastness.
Owned and operated by the Boshoff family, the atmosphere is very warm and inviting at Rafiki Safari Lodge. Treat yourself to a home-cooked South African ‘braai’ (barbecue) or taste the restaurant's home-cooked cuisine during your stay. Guests are able to lounge by the pool, listen to the sounds of the rainforest, or embark on their own adventures when they choose Rafiki Safari Lodge for their next Costa Rican getaway.
Rafiki offers luxury safari tents that are positioned atop hardwood platforms, each equipped with Costa Rican style rocking chairs for easy jungle viewing. Additionally, the tents include large windows to ensure proper ventilation, canvas walls to protect from nature’s elements, and fire-heated showers. All meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) are provided by lodge staff, truly giving you an experience like no other.
Rafiki Safari Lodge is not like your typical accommodation option in Costa Rica. There aren’t any king size beds or ceramic bathtubs here, just a little taste of Africa in the beauty of Costa Rica. We recommend these tents for people who adore the outdoors and don’t mind experiencing the country from the view of a jungle-side tent.
